"Bike or Hike to Church" Featured in the Tribune Today

Check it out on the Tribune site here, but the text is below.  I (Kevin) guess this means I've gotta get the bike rolling tonight.

Karis church joins citywide green event

Columbia’s Karis Community Church will hold a “Bike (or Hike) to Church Sunday” event tomorrow as church members meet at 10 a.m. at the Missouri Theatre Center for the Arts, 203 S. Ninth St.

The event is held in conjunction with Get About Columbia’s Bike, Walk and Wheel Week. Congregants and guests will be coming to Karis in creative, healthy and environmentally friendly ways. Pastor Kevin Larson will bike to church with his 5-year-old son, Hadley. His wife, Amy, will walk to the worship gathering with their other two children.

The annual Mayor’s Challenge: Bike, Walk and Wheel Week will begin with a kickoff celebration from 1 to 4 p.m. today at Flat Branch Park. The event is free and for all ages. Register and pick up your Bike, Walk and Wheel Week T-shirt and enjoy music and a variety of family events, including a bike polo match and a “Float Your Boat” kids’ activity, bike safety and commuting tips, and bicycle tire and tube recycling.
